Cardi B Issues Fiery Clapback At Hater Who Claims She "Doesn't Know Jack About The Culture"

When you're from the birthplace of hip-hop, that is a laughable insinuation.

Published November 14, 2018

If there's one thing you should know about Bronx hip-hop phenom Cardi B, it's that if you try to discredit her in any way— as a mom, wife and especially, a rapper —prepare for her wrath.

Ever since she traded in the pole for plaques, the former stripper and reality star has made countless efforts to prove her worth and remain a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. This time, the Invasion of Privacy femcee announced she was a new judge, alongside Chance The Rapper and T.I., for Netflix’s new music competition show, Rhythm + Flow. Chano and Tip both avoided widespread disapproval while Bardi, unfortunately, got mocked.

  1. A slew of negative reactions flooded the gates of Twitter...
  2. However, the "Bodak Yellow" femcee shut down the criticism with a vengeance

    In the comments, one woman said, instead of getting “a judge like Lil Kim… they get Cardi B who doesn’t know jack about the culture and is a student to ghostwriting teachers? Smh.” Naturally, the curt sentiments made Cardi’s blood boil. In response, the “No Limit” co-star read her for filth.

    “How am I a culture vulture? I’m from the Bronx where Hip-Hop was made...” she began. “Hip hop is the genre of music that I relate to THE MOST. In this show I will be pickin people that not only have talent but star quality and make GOOD MUSIC.  A lot of people can spit but can’t stick... I know when sh*t is a GOOD RECORD that’s why YOU KNOW MY MUSIC AND MY NAME,” she ruthlessly continued.

    In a video follow-up, Bardi said, “I don’t give a f**k if you think I’m unqualified as a judge, b*tch I make hits,” and reminded those willingly to take that risk, she’s specifically searching for that “diamond in the rough with that ‘it’ factor.” Peep the “Money” femcee’s full sentiments below and if you have what it takes, sign up for the Rhythm + Flow, arriving in 2019.
